But the fact is that the gifted are different. They are not only different in intelligence but also different emotionally.
In particular the gifted are described as, "over excitable", (OE).
Interestingly this is a pejorative phrase, and perhaps, "highly excitable", or "labile", or " freely flowing emotionally", might be better and more accurate.
And in my opinion it is this marked emotional difference, that is rejected by the normal.
The gifted are abnormal emotionally and naturally this is not understood by the normal.
And of course the normal think everyone should be like themselves. And emotion being invisible, this baffles the normal. And so the normal reject free flowing emotion.
This is doubly tragic for not only are the gifted socially rejected but flow is also rejected.
And flow is the hallmark of creativity.
And so we find it no surprise that the normal reject creativity. And this impoverishes us all.
